Annual Senior Etiquette Dinner is Tuesday, Oct. 16
The 11th annual Senior Etiquette Dinner, one of the most popular annual events on campus, will give seniors preparing for life after graduation valuable lessons for proper conduct during a business lunch or dinner. Billed as “an evening of shrimp tails, dessert forks and getting down to business,” the dinner is scheduled for 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 16 in Ochre Court.
Hosted by the Student Alumni Association, the evening will revolve around a formal dinner, during which students will learn tips on handling issues such as how to deal with finger food, what to do with the dinner napkin, which fork to use when, how to pass plates around the table and more.
Coaches will be on hand at each table to guide conversation and closely monitor and critique students. Dr. Myra Edelstein, associate professor and chairwoman of the Department of Business Studies and Economics, and Dr. Khalil Habib, associate professor of philosophy and director of the Pell Honors Program, will serve as the masters of ceremonies.
The etiquette dinner is free and open to all seniors, but seating is limited. Proper business attire is required.
